Private Equity at LBS is a research centre within London Business School. As such our focus on research is fundamental to the Institute's vision and mission. Our interests are broad, covering venture capital to private equity, examining this field from a variety of stakeholder perspectives. Our research comprises academic papers, case studies and applied analysis.


Influential business leaders and investment thinkers will gather for the 12th Private Equity Symposium at London Business School on the 27–28 June 2019.

Co-sponsored by the Private Capital Project at Harvard Business School with funding from the Division of Research and Faculty Development, Wharton Alternative Investments Initiative and Private Equity at LBS, the Symposium is the leading event in this investment class.

Leaders from 3i, Newton Investment Management, The Carlyle Group and Apollo Management International, among many others, have generously shared their thoughts at past symposia.

Updates on this year’s programme, speakers and panellists will be revealed here. In the meantime, please save the date.
